We're Home...

We're back. We're Married. We're Baptised. We're Tired. I'm still not caught up on everything, so I won't be posting much this week!

Going on Hiatus!

That's right...with the wedding fast approaching, and Miss Moon demanding more and more of my time...I've decided that until after the wedding (Sept 16th) I won't have time to post. I do try and read most of your posts, but barely have time to comment.

So take care ladies, we'll be back in a couple of weeks!

Thursday Thirteen #5: "Firsts" I'm Looking Forward To, I Think....

13 "Firsts" I'm Looking Forward To, I Think....

1. First time she sleeps through the night in her room! She sleeps all night but when she cries for her pacifier I go and get her, and now I think she needs to coming into our room, midway through the night. Something I never should've started I guess!

2. First Tooth: We're already well on our way. Her teeth are coming down/up now they just need to push on through!

3. First Snowfall: She's so observant that I can't wait to see that puzzled look on her face when we go outside to everything being white!

4. First Time She Crawls: That's one of those that I'm not sure I'm excited for! I just look around and see the baby proofing that will need to be done!

5. First Time We Go Swimming: We'll take "lessons" starting in Jan when she's old enough :)

6. First Word: What will it be, what will it be?

7. First Veggie She eats: Right now all she's had is cereal, but with veggies it will be a different reaction every 3-5 days...Think of the photo opts!

8. First Steps: Another one that I hold with mixed emotions.

9. First Day Of School: Yikes! That's all I have too say about that one.

10. First Outcry For Independence: Doesn't that come around age 2?

11. First Dance: I was so excited for mine, I hope she will be too!

12. First Best Friend: Maybe it will always be the same friend, but I had a few (we moved, and changed school board, so my friends changed).

13: First Date: I wonder how DH will handle that one!

***Now don't get me wrong, I'm loving everyminute (well almost every minute) but I still like to think about the future and what that may hold for my little Moon!

Wordless Wednesday #5: Cereal 1st Time

Saturday, August 19, 2006


That's right. She did it for 20 seconds, once, a few weeks ago. But just a few hours ago she did it again. And this time the laugh went on and on and on!

I loved every minute. I thought I was gonna cry I was laughing so hard! She's got a great down in the belly laugh. I hope I remember that moment forever and ever.

We were just sitting on the couch, hanging out together after a bottle, and she looked at me and laughed. Now a more self-conscious person might have started to wonder what was so funny because she laughed for a few minutes. It was great!

I can't wait to hear it again. Hopefully the next one isn't weeks away!

Keep laughing baby girl!

Wordless Wednesday #4: Sunflower Fields

For more Wordless Wednesday please visit: 5 Minutes For Mom


Why...I have a lot of why questions floating around in my head right now. Why did I commit to a book club right now? Why did we wait so long for the marriage license? Why do we try to make everyone happy? Why does she compare her children's weddings? Aren't they individuals? Why didn't we just fly away and get married? Why? Why? Why?

I skipped Tackle it Tuesday this week because I wasn't home, we're home now, and we still have so much to do. The wedding is officially one month away!

I'll try and keep up here, but I don't know if I can. Also, Char seems to have picked up the beginning of a cold. She snoared a lot last night, and her nasal passages seem pretty closed up. She'll be three months old in two days, how time flies!
